T-Mobile network users of Samsung’s latest flagship, the Galaxy S4, will begin receiving an update to their device. This will improve the performance of built-in Visual Voicemail application and provide “ISIS app improvements.”
According to T-Mobile, this software update, M91UVUAMDL, will be distributed to users of the Galaxy S4 through Samsun’s Kies desktop application and as an over-the-air update straight to user’s devices.
As there is no documentation pointing out each individual change in the voicemail application, we’re left to assume that this update’s “improvements” will be limited in scope to just stability enhancements and bug fixes.
T-Mobile also doesn’t indicate exact changes made to the device’s ISIS application, so we’re again left to assume that it’s only been updated to enhance stability and fix bugs. ISIS is a payment system that uses a device’s NFC, or Near Field Communications, chip to allow the user to pay for items in services at outlets that support it. Isis is a joint venture between AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless.
Visual Voicemail allows users to sort through their recent audio voicemails as if they were local messages, without the need to place a call or use touch-tone button presses to delete and save them.
T-Mobile only recently made the Samsung Galaxy S4 available to its customers. The carrier’s variant only comes in white and blue, and has 16 GB of onboard media storage. The device’s microSD card slot can be used to add even more storage space. The Galaxy S4 supports T-Mobile’s new high-speed 4G network. According to the company, this new network will cover over 200 million people by the end of this calendar year.
Currently, the Samsung Galaxy S4 will cost T-Mobile users a $149.99 down payment and monthly payments of $20 for 24 months. After the down payment, users can choose to pay off the balance owed on the device at any time. Users can also pay for the device in its entirety upfront for $629. T-Mobile recently did away with its device discounts and two-year service agreements.
This past weekend, Samsung unveiled three new advertisements designed to promote the exclusive software features included in every Samsung Galaxy S4 like Air Gestures, Eraser Shot, and WatchOn.
